Such an strategy obviously calls for the composition student to re-place invention from the author to the websites of motion, the genres, during which the author participates. This stream demands a completely rhetorical view of invention, approximately within the culture of Richard younger, Janice Lauer, and those that have them.

El estudio de los angeles retórica tuvo una gran importancia en todas las facetas de l. a. vida en los angeles Antigüedad, incluyendo l. a. época imperial de estos autores, pues todo futuro filósofo, científico u orador debía formarse como mínimo con el gramático, que le familiarizaba con los autores clásicos y le preparaba para expresarse con precisión y elegancia, una condición necesaria para el desempeño de cualquier actividad intelectual. l. a. retórica se afianzó con el movimiento llamado Segunda Sofística, del siglo II de nuestra period, y tuvo una repercusión inmediata por su implantación en las escuelas. Los tres ejercicios de retórica de este volumen permiten conocer en qué consistía y qué objetivos perseguía esta formación. De los tres, el más influyente fue el de Aftonio, que incorpora claros ejemplos y trata elementos de los angeles composición retórica o literaria, como son las fábulas, las sentencias, los lugares comunes, el encomio, el vituperio, and so on. De Hermógenes se ha conservado también un extraordinary tratado de retórica, Sobre las formas de estilo, que ocupa otro volumen de esta colección.
